Sometimes I just like to close my eyes and let my mind do its own thing.
Let it get carried away in Jay Vincent’s notes and beats.
While my mind goes on adventures, I am curled up on the floor.
It’s easier to stand to the side and let my mind do all the thinking. To shut my mouth and let my pen do all the talking.
While my fingers fly and my notebook thins, I am silent in my bed.
Emotions streaming in are easier than emotions streaming out. That’s what music is for. To feel someone else’s heartbeat so you don’t have to share your own. To let others do the screaming and the singing; that’s what music is for.
Reading and music allow us to dip our fingers into the essence of the universe and are the tools we use to live.
Music and words allow us to create—make the invisible visible—and share our heartbeat with the world so that it doesn’t have to.
